You can move all the data files (including MP3s) to the second hard drive.
Actually, the best thing might be if you have data files on the second drive that are not duplicates of what you now have on the master drive (the first drive - the one that has your operating system on it), you can move them to the first hard drive. the master drive, reformat the slave drive, then move all data files you want to keep to the slave.
Then reformat your master drive, reinstall your operating system and programs, and move whatever data you want back from the slave to the master drive.
Just a recommendation:
I find the following works well -
I partition my master hard drive into three virtual drives.
One for the operating system
The second for most other programs (ones that are not actually part of the op system like IE and Outlook which install with your op system)
And a third for all data files.
If you have a large enough drive to have room to do this it can be beneficial because if you ever have to reload your op system again the virtual drives on your main hard drive will not be affected.
Your second drive (slave) can be useful for backup and working with large files like videos, or MP3 files, pix, etc.
It is also a good idea to put your swapfile (paging file) on the slave drive (actual second hard drive - not a virtual drive partition). Doing so will make your system slightly faster. (The rule of thumb is that the pagefile should be one and a half times how much RAM you have).
If you ever had a problem with the second hard drive I would suggest you check it thoroughly. There are several programs available to check the "health" of the drive including Everest Home Edition. In any case, I would check it out to make sure it was healthy so you didn't move data to it and then loose it.
